Re: “Stormwater fee's "vote no" committee political operative doesn't live in the city

CO Sprs residents are entitled to the facts both for and against this measure to allow them to make their own minds up. Give Ms Carno credit for getting the facts out there and you should not have a problem with facts; not opinions and not lies either.

Our library district in Arapahoe not only hires someone who doesnt live in the district; but who lies and misleads residents to pass a 245 % tax increase in 2015. They got it passed too.

As for campaign donations; blame the loose campaign finance laws on that one as our library district took advantage of that too.

No; we dont live in CO Sps. NO we dont know the facts in this issue. NO we have not given any money to anyone on this issue.

Re: “Spring's fleet vehicles of vehicles is wearing out, but a stormwater fee could help

This "fee" isn't about stormwater it is about taking money from one program and applying it to another. So the little mayor is lying again.

Re: “Colorado Ethics Watch announces closure effective December 31

There's no such thing anymore as "ethics". One only has to look at the behavior of the man in the WH and his cronies and Cabinet members to see that! How sad that the days when decency and integrity mattered are gone forever.

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

The NRA has not "backed off". The BATFE has previously ruled that bump stocks are not illegal. The NRA has called for a BATFE review of that ruling. The only reason to review that ruling is to change it. They have stopped short of backing any particular bill regarding bump stocks. So any assertion that the NRA has backed off or trying to backpedal is horse manure

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

so now the right to bear arms is "god given"... the nra gun lobbyest have already backed away from the "restriction" part of their statement in regard to bump stocks. their chief lobbyest stated they only want more research done... almost had a few seconds where you thought they had a conscience and didn't only care about profits for the gun industry... I'm sure they want a few more million sold before they make a true decision.

I know the right wing fact free, propaganda only media is stating the vegas shooter was left wing but that has not been shown. might want to be sure before you make hateful ignorant hysterical statements...

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

We need to rid our country of the hateful ignorant hysterical leftists like the gunman in Vegas. You people are an utter cancer to our free and open society which will ALWAYS include the God given right to bear arms. Silencers have nothing to do with the vegas shooting yet another MSM democrat propaganda point. What gun law would have stopped stephen paddock? He purchased all his guns legally and passed baclground checks? You sick bastards didnt even wait until the bodies were cold. I hate you disgusting inhuman bastards you have no shame or empathy left in you. Keep drinking the democratic kool aid ralph. Thats what the left is a demonic evil cult.

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

I've noticed that the Westside pioneer is leading the charge in calling them bums and suggesting that all services be cut off because the editor believes they will fix themselves. People acting like they are OK stepping over dead bodies in the streets and would rather the people they wish to discard would just die. I think people who do nothing and think their words are going to fix the problem are horrific. Most of you are a pay check away from sleeping in the park yourself.

Homeless people don't have garbage pick up. Many of you have never seen the dump sites you good upstanding citizens use around this town.

Re: “Springs man at the heart of federal lawsuit to upend the Electoral College

OK, this wouldn't really "upend the Electoral College". It would make a very minor modification to the way some states implement the Electoral College and it would have had NO AFFECT ON THE ELECTION. It would have allowed some of the electors who were forced to cast votes for Clinton to cast votes for Sanders instead. End result? A divided ticket for the Dems and Trump would have won by an even larger electoral margin.

The Constitution leaves it to the states to determine how electors are chosen. Nothing in the Constitution prohibits the states from placing restrictions on how the electors vote.

If we really wanted to effect change in the Electoral College, we would forbid states from adopting winner-take-all policies; however, it would take a constitutional amendment to do this. All but two states have these winner-take-all policies. These policies mean that a candidate need only win a plurality (not even a majority) of the vote in 11 states to become president. Those states are CA, TX, NY, FL, PA, IL, OH, MI, GA, NC, and NJ.

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

First of all, there was absolutely NOTHING stopping the Vegas gunman from buying suppressors and using them. Anyone who can legally own a firearm can legally own a suppressor. Furthermore, it is not hard to make improvised suppressors. The only change that the bill regarding suppressors would do is to reduce the length of the background check and remove the $200 fee.

The gunman used bump-stocks to make his firearms rapid fire. The NRA has supported restrictions on bump stocks.

The Supreme Court and the federal circuit courts have been very instrumental in controlling our firearm laws, and while you focus on the NRA boogeyman, the Second Amendment Foundation and Firearm Policy Coalition have been winning court case after court case. In fact, the two big Supreme Court cases, Heller and McDonald, were SAF cases, not NRA cases.

Re: “I-25 widening campaign raises $54K

So how is the money going to be spent? Will it be given to CDOT (which would go toward more planning/study) or does the PPRTA think they will be allowed by the state to widen that portion from Monument to the county line? Wow - widening a couple of miles just to the north of Monument will really help! Not one article on this ballot issue has said what the money will be used for.
